At the beginning of September I photographed Steph and Lewis' beautiful wedding at Marks Hall in Coggeshall, Essex.
Steph and her bridesmaids got ready at her home in Chelmsford. It was a lovely relaxed morning with Lucy styling their hair and Karen applying their makeup.
Steph's stunning dress was from Precious Moments in Rayleigh, and her veil was incredible!
The beautiful bouquets were from The Artisan Dried Flower Company, and very different to any I've seen before, made entirely from dried flowers. They perfectly complimented the styling of the whole wedding and have the added bonus of staying exactly as they are, forever!
The weather the week before had been a bit hit-and-miss (early that morning was a little uncertain too!) but we were incredibly lucky to have beautiful sunshine, which meant they could have their ceremony outside. It was a beautiful ceremony with some really lovely readings. They were so lucky to be able to enjoy the gorgeous gardens while enjoying Pimms and Prosecco with friends and family. I managed to steal Steph and Lewis away for a little while to take some portraits of them together. I was spoilt for choice in the stunning grounds at Marks Hall! Huge thanks to bridesmaid Katie for all her help on veil duties! The guests all then enjoyed a fabulous barbecue meal in the spacious barn. The dried flower centrepieces looked beautiful in the setting and I loved all the fairy lights strung about! The delicious meal was followed by hilarious speeches from Steph's Dad, Lewis, and his two best men, who made a great double-act! Steph and Lewis chose Ed Sheehan's 'Lego House' for their first dance, which was followed by a great DJ set from Blackjack Wedding Discos that had everyone up on the dance floor - I had to hold myself back from joining in! It was day filled with fun, laughter and happiness and I'm so pleased to have been able to photograph it for them. Congratulations Steph and Lewis!
It was such a pleasure to work with everyone on such a glorious day! Thank you so much to everyone, and to Steph and Lewis for asking me to photograph their day.
